So I have this incubator and it seems to be working great but at times the temperature drops down to 99 and back to 100 will that affect my duck eggs??. Also they say to spray or spritz duck eggs with water at day 10 is this true??.

My temps have always toggled back and forth between 98.7 to 101°F, which keeps the internal egg temp at around 99.8°F. I very lightly spritz my duck eggs with very warm (but not hot) water every few days and get anywhere from 85-100% hatch rate. Best of luck on your hatch!

X2 If you keep a small water bottle in the incubator with the eggs that buts it at a nice temp for spritzing too
